Child, 12, killed in Tennessee school bus accident

The Tennessee Highway Patrol says an East Tennessee child was killed when he was struck and killed by a school bus.

The Greeneville Sun reported the incident occurred Thursday morning on Holder Road and said emergency personnel confirmed one child had been killed.

Lt. Jarrett Ramsey of the Fall Branch district of the THP said the 12-year-old boy was struck as the bus was making its first pickup of the day at around 6:40 a.m. Ramsey said the boy's sibling had already boarded the bus.

Ramsey said boy, whose name was not immediately released, was a student at Chuckey-Doak Middle School in Greene County. Ramsey said he did not know whether any charges would be filed, but the THP's Criminal Investigation Division was assisting with the investigation.
